Residence Halls

Cummings Complex

This three-story complex encompasses four buildings suitable for undergraduate students. The four halls are connected but maintain their individual community environment. In the center of Cummings Complex is an upper and lower lounge that proves to be a great space for people to get together with amenities that include: 2 fireplaces, pool table, 2 flat screen televisions, ping pong, shuffle board, and comfortable furniture.

  • Buildings: Emerson Hall, Barnes Hall, Talcott Hall, Lathrop Hall
  • Room Options: Double, Single, Suite, Double as a Single, Super Single


Small Houses

The small houses consist of 6 undergraduate halls, all of which are self-contained halls that are co-ed by floor. The small houses’ atmosphere is more homey with each hall having its own common area lounge that is unique and includes a kitchenette.

  • Room Options: Double, Single, Suite, Double as a Single


Themed Communities

Theme housing options are designed to enhance your residential experience by supporting your academic interests or lifestyle preferences. Themed communities allow students with common interests and pursuits to live together and support each other through planned activities and informal interactions.

For the 2015-2016 academic year, our themes include the following:

  • First-Year Experience – Dayton Hall
  • 24 Hour Quiet Hall– Svenson Hall
